Broker's Comments

This Orion 39 is one of a pair of very special Yachts designed by A N Michel who is the president of the French Yacht Design Academy. She was sailed around the world and also made 7 transatlantic crossings . Her present skipper/owner a pilot book author, has used her for exploring new harbours and anchorages throughout the Med. She has a good set of nav gear. Down below she is bright, cheerful and clean with lots of storage space.

Full survey done in 2006, lifted in 2008 and anti fouled , keel bolts checked...all good. She is for sale in very good condition

This is a yachtsman's yacht equipped for single-handed sailing and practical, simple aids to short handed sailing.

Her tough hull and rig will protect her crew and few yachts of her size can boast having sailed so many blue water miles. A perfect boat for a blue water sailor.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
